"I am passionate about nurturing and working with children and their families from birth to school age. Outstanding quality early childhood education is so important for our future children and citizens of the world. The best start is critical. "
Rhythm of The Day
With endless possibilities, there’s never a dull moment at Guardian and no two days are the same. Here’s what a day at Guardian might look like. Please note, this will vary depending on centre opening hours.
Handover time with children, families and our friendly Educators. There's a chance for conversation to share what's important for the day/what's happened the night before at home.
Breakfast time where families are welcome to stay and enjoy breakfast with the children.
As children are arriving and families are coming and going, there's an opportunity for play as well as family grouping, open-plan play and multi-age grouping.
As the children come together, planned experiences begin. This is where the Guardian programs and practices come to life. Examples of learning include numeracy, literacy, language, critical thinking, problem solving, leadership, social skills, technology, science, creative arts, curiosity and more.
There's an opportunity for children to come together and enjoy morning tea.
Following morning tea, the planned experiences continue. This includes both indoor and outdoor programs.
There's an opportunity for children to come together for lunch. With an open-door policy, families are able to join the centre for meals and excursion if they wish.
For children who want to, or need to, there's an opportunity to sleep, rest or relax. For children who don't need to rest, there are planned experiences, which are more likely to be outdoors.
Children come together for afternoon tea in small groups or with siblings (they can also rest and play together, too). This time also presents an opportunity to reflect on the day.
End of the day
As families arrive to pick up children, there's an opportunity to speak to Educators and share information about the day.
End of the day
Some centres offer early tea or light snack at the end of the day, which they can grab as they leave the centre. We’re mindful of how routines vary at home, so if throughout the day, we notice children look tired, food will be provided.
Open 6:30am to 6:30pm
Monday to Friday
Our team of Educators are committed and passionate about ensuring your child will be safe, nurtured and cared for every day. At Guardian, children are encouraged to engage in interest-led play that creates learning and meaningful experiences.
Our Educators seek to optimise diverse learning opportunities and implement the Curriculum as framed by the Early Years Learning Framework.
You and Your Child
All Guardian Centres provide a Centre-to-Family communication platform so families can maintain contact with their children’s experiences through photos, stories and learning outcomes.
Our Centres use Storypark and each family is provided with a secure login to access on their computers, mobiles or apps.

Excellent childcare for my 17month old. He is cared for and given engaging activities that enrich his education. He can now clear his bowl, wipe down his table and is communicating with others better.
My children absolutely love coming to Guardian at Coromandel Valley. It’s a beautiful centre with a lovely big garden to explore. The rooms are set up beautifully and my children always say how yummy the food is. The staff are really lovely and engaging and admin updates are really handy with the app they use. We’ve had a lot of tours with other centres and this one was far by the best. Would 100% recommend, We love it here.
We have had a very good experience sending our children to Guardian. The staff are the biggest factor. They're warm, enthusiastic, attentive and communicate well with each other and myself regarding our kids. The centre environment and facilities are also fantastic in my eyes. I love the layout at Coromandel Valley. The open flow and crossover across the different age areas; the large, shared outdoor area with places to take risks and get dirty or play quietly; the well-balanced feel of bright colours and activities with natural colours and materials; and the dining areas and approach to eating times.
In my opinion, it couldn't be better.Amazing staff and environment for kids to grow and learn.

Our son loves going to Guardian at Coromandel Valley. The centre is so nice and open and the outdoor area is amazing. We have noticed how much our son has developed over the past few months and he gets excited when we arrive. The staff are all so friendly and greet us every time we arrive. At the end of the day at pick up they go through what our son has done, what he has eaten and how long he had slept for, which I find very important. I would definitely recommend Guardian at Coromandel Valley.

We have had a wonderful experience here so far. The staff are very friendly and professional. The centre is extremely clean and brand new. There is a kitchen and chef on site with a menu that is seasonal and forwarded to parents for input. The outdoor environment is beautiful and really peaceful for the children. We are very grateful to be able to receive photos and stories throughout the day describing what our child has been doing. Everything a parent needs in a daycare.
Beautiful centre, facilities and location! The staff have been so welcoming since we started - they have been incredibly attentive and accommodating too. My daughter has wonderful learning experiences and everything is well documented and a joy to read. Staff in the setting are always so friendly and polite with me and very nurturing towards my daughter - nothing is too much hassle for them. The menu is healthy and varied - there is always an alternative for my fussy eater too, which I love! Thank you Guardian Coromandel Valley... I highly recommend this centre.
The staff at Guardian are absolutely fantastic! My babe is so happy to go there, cries when we leave, they send me photo updates and without fail my babe is always smiling and doing something new and fun every day! The staff are friendly, welcoming, and caring which is important. I couldnt recommend them enough!
